The only thing I might do is take out the screws he used one by one and replace with stainless ones, maybe add small washers under each one as well.
Looks like he glued and screwed it in. His english is very bad so he wasnt able to answer if they were stainless or not or if they were self tapping screws or what. They do not look stainless. No biggie!. Nice guy though. Seems to do a lot of boat upholstery .... and there sure are a lot of boats here on the west coast.
Hunting season is done ... time to get back to the bike! I was successful getting a nice billy mountain goat and a nice, mature Columbia blacktail up here in BC. Now weather is getting nice and days are getting long and time to play with the bike a bit once again
I added some turn signals that double as tail lights but I find the rear end to be so naked still. Thinking of adding a round tail light.
I cant come up with a good way to attach it. Does anyone have some ideas for adding a round taillight?
The easiest solutions would be:
1. Add a fender and light on top of that.
2. Do a LED strip on the rear hoop
Not really a fan of either option right now. The hoop is a bit overdone. The fender would ruin my "clean" look.
Curious what you guys would do
weld a bracket to hoop? drill holes and sheet metal screw the mount in? Strong magnet? *shrug*
Another vote for fender. Chop the thing and fit it so that it extends around 6" or so from the hoop - that way you'll keep the clean look of your bike and as a bonus keep the clean look of the back of your moto jacket too
Can you bolt the whole assembly onto the bottom of your seat pan?
Watch out for clearance issues with the plate (and holder) and your rear wheel. On my first build I didn't factor enough clearance in and ended up with a busted taillight and chewed up plate. I had a hard time finding those P clamps Maritime's talking about but eventually found them at Princess Auto, in case you end up going that route -
